Whisky Reviews for Usher's Green Stripe

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    One thing to remember with older blends from the 1950`s onwards is that many of them have a slightly different flavour profile than todays offerings with the same name. The reason for this is that older blends contain whiskies from distilleries that are now closed, exception, this will have some Coleburn in it.

    Quite unique, hard blend character. But I drank better blends.
    • Nose
      Caramel, antique leather, wine and vinegar, honeycomb, wax, musty cellar
    • Taste
      Creamy and sweet: wine, honey, cream, spices: pepper and ginger
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet length

    Yep, I like this old blend, it is syrupy sweet but I could not drink a lot of it, a full fat blend
    • Nose
      Toffee,caramel, apple, honeycomb, wafer.

      After a while there is leather bound books, old libraries etc
    • Taste
      Quite mouth filling, full on the palate, on honey & cream.

      A little ginger and ginger cake mixed with butter
    • Finish
      Almost medium with a syrupy sweetness to the end
